Maxxfan Installation

I am planning to install 2 maxxfans in my 86 Airstream (no fans currently). Is it ok to make the 12 volt connections to the existing ceiling light 12 volt system? Thanks for your response.......

Make sure you get you power feed from the hot side before the switch. I had one that was wired thru the switch and was a pain to correct.
